Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

This Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad is sure to be the hit of your next potluck, cookout, or picnic.

It’s so easy to make and can have cheese added for a delicious filling.

You could always add chicken if you need it as an easy weeknight meal too!

I prefer making this ahead of time even days before my parties just because sometimes cooking when people are around gets distracting (especially with all those great smells!).

Covering it in plastic wrap helps keep any leftovers fresh until they’re needed again.
